Le Suite Gesu: Crowning with Thorns: 9th Proof

I established the lower edge of the beard. The 8th proof was full of drypoint that I burnished down. Too many fuzzy lines make Jack a dull boy.

Now I have to create a full range of value in the lower portion of the print, in the background. I'll do it with engraving.

I like the 19th century glass negative effect I got out of the scraping. There is some indeterrminate stuff going on with the soldiers that I'll attend to also.

Now, what I need from anyone who actually likes this is to go to CatholicStarter.com and donate to my CS campaign, so I can raise part of the capital I need to get a bigger etching press. I want to do crowd scenes like Serman on the Mount, but 9x12 in. is tough to fit that into. Help me out guys. There are some cool rewards.
